Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 63,850

Fitness Minutes: 54,254

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Ian did get to come home and got to stay longer this time - 3.5 hours. We had a nice meal and visit. It is the first time we have gotten to see him this year.

I hope you both have a wonderful time on your trip!

Thanks for the flowers. They put a smile on my face. We're adding John's mom into the mix of needs more attention. She turns 89 tomorrow and seems to be giving up. She wants no birthday celebration, no flowers this summer, no garden. I wish I didn't feel so helpless with her but I can't make a person care.

Time to walk a dog. It's only 32 this morning so I haven't put away my winter coat, hat and gloves yet. At least during the days the temp climbs into the 50s.

I hope lots gets taken off that to-do list today. emoticon

The pollen seems to be especially bad this year too, or maybe it is because I am getting older. ;-)
Hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family.

I am more of a mow the yard, vegetable garden kind of person but I am determined not to let the landscaping get back into the shape it was in. Molly is a sweetheart. That is Amy in todays blog. She is Molly's big sister and a sweetheart too. We raised Amy till she was almost 8 so she holds a special place in our heart.
Hope you are having a great week.
